I was born and raised in Southeastern Idaho, where I taught 8th grade reading, history, English, and computer technology for 9 years and 4th grade for 2 years before relocating to Mississippi.
Since being here, I have taught at East Flora Elementary for 4 years, Bentonia Gibbs Elementary in Yazoo County for 6 years, and Madison Crossing for 9 years. I was awarded the Teacher of the Year for East Flora Elementary and Elementary Teacher of the Year for Madison County in 2003. A few years later I was awarded Bentonia Gibbs Teacher of the Year 2008, Teacher of the Year for Bentonia Gibbs and Yazoo County 2009, and Best of Yazoo 2010.
My experiences include almost every subject, (yet my love is literature and writing... and science... and history). I am currently teaching 5th Grade science and language arts in the two way block with Mrs. Reed. I love teaching, I love children, and I look forward to many great years in the Madison County School District.
